This release brings all of the updates and development that has gone
into Mageia 6 together into fresh installation media, giving users a
kernel that supports hardware released after Mageia 6. The new
installations will benefit from the countless updates that current fully
updated Mageia systems will have, allowing new installations to avoid
the need for a large update post install. So if you are currently
running an up to date Mageia 6 system, there is no need to reinstall
Mageia 6.1 as you will already be running the same packages.
This release is available with only Live media, i.e. Live Plasma, Live
GNOME and Live Xfce in 64bits, and Live Xfce in 32 bits. A network
installation is also available, for users wanting more granular control
over the installation.
